Tom Maschler’s book is a festschrift of which, unusually, the subject and the author are the same. His life, fame, achievements, authors, friendships, enemies and admirers, his crises and moodswings are already known to booktrade elders, who hardly need read his embellishments, though they provide evidence of the rise of the in-house literary editor from glorified reader to celebrity publisher.
